Polling firm asks public what Clark should do

"What is the one change or improvement you personally would most like to see from Christy Clark?" That was one of the questions posed on Saturday evening by a polling firm that has, in the past, been connected to Ms. Clark's campaign manager Mike McDonald. A spokesperson for the campaign said it didn't commission the survey, which was rolled out immediately following her election as provincial Liberal leader.

Innovative Research Group Inc. also asked respondents for their opinion regarding the "policies and programs of the BC Liberal party."

Possible answers ranged from "their polices and programs are working well and need no change" to "their policies and programs are fundamentally wrong and should be reversed."

In the past, Mr. McDonald has been cited as a senior research associate with Innovative Research.

Mr. McDonald has not yet responded to a separate request for comment.

The following is a complete copy of the aforementioned survey.
